Nebraska Board of Regents to consider alcohol sales at Husker basketball games
KEARNEY, Neb. -- The University of Nebraska Board of Regents is considering allowing alcohol sales at Nebraska basketball games.
At the board's upcoming Sept. 30 meeting, which will be held on the campus of UNK at a yet-to-be-specified location, an amendment to the University's operations agreement with Pinnacle Bank Arena will be considered, allowing for alcohol sales at Nebraska men's and women's basketball games beginning this season.
In February, the Board of Regents updated the university's policy on alcohol sales at athletic events, allowing for the sale of alcohol at Pinnacle Bank Arena for the Big Ten Wrestling Tournament.
The City of Lincoln will also be involved, as it owns Pinnacle Bank Arena.
The proposal in front of the regents would send 90 percent of revenue from alcohol sales to the city, and 10 percent to the university.
There are no current proposals that would open up alcohol sales at Haymarket Park or Memorial Stadium.
The board will also be discussing potential renovations to Memorial Stadium, as well as Nebraska's recently proposed multimedia rights deal.
